While trying to walk back recent comments likening former President Obama to a murderer, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) created a new headache for House Democratic leaders.
In trying to clarify that — contrary to her recent comments to Politico — she does view President Trump differently from Obama, Omar may have over-corrected.
Asked by Fox News whether she believes “President Obama is the same as President Trump,” Rep. Omar said they very in one significant way.
"Absolutely not,” she said. “That is silly to even think and equate the two, one is human the other is not."
